Sunrise had the opportunity to host a research team from Duke University on campus for a few days. They immersed themselves in our program, sitting in on Treatment Team and DBT Consultation. The Duke team conducted trainings on Emotion Regulation & Mindfulness, as well as Exposure Principles & DBT. Their visit brought collaboration on clinical services and research, while building excellence in education and training. Both entities are looking forward to working jointly for years to come on projects that will enhance treatment for adolescents and raise the bar of clinical effectiveness.
The staff gratefully shared some of their takeaways, which were: "Mindfulness doesn't always have to be therapeutic. If you are doing mindfulness you can utilize it however it works best for you." Another nugget was "DBT doesn't have to be so formal, and that the importance is to use function over form."
Sunrise wholeheartedly believes in continuous educational opportunities. They realize that the girl they treat morphs on a monthly basis. Creating a learning environment for their staff and clinicians ensures that they are at the forefront of treatment.
